Google's stand against China

An altruistic stand against tyranny, or a good marketing strategy?

started by Mr. Huge on 1/15/10.

For Against
Google doesn't owe China anything. It is a business unto itself and can do or not do as it sees fit. If, in fact, the maneuver is a clever marketing ploy (which I believe it is), the it is in the best interests of Google to do so, not to mention the fact that Google has been receiving more than a little flak for abiding and China's censorship and tyranny so long and so easily.

And let's not dismiss the possibility of all possible worlds in which a clever marketing ploy also aligns with the morals of the company. Imagine if implementation in China was only phase one, knowing full well that they'd pull out with a sour grimace later on.
